Help w/ Positioning Objects

Postby DrT » Sat Dec 08, 2018 12:15 am

HI!

I am using Inkscape 0.92.3 running under Windows 7 Pro, 64-bit, Service Pack 1.

Using Interpolate, I ended w/ four Objects of Type Path: white, light pink, dark pink, and red.

I used the Align and Distribute Tool and positioned the four objects one on top of the other.

How can I select the objects, one at a time, so that I can re-position them in this order: White on top, light pink next, dark pink next, and red at the bottom?

Thank you!

Dr. T

In Inkscape there are tutorials that cover these techniques.

Have a nice day.

I'm using Inkscape 0.92.2 (5c3e80d, 2017-08-06), 64 bit win8.1

The Inkscape manual has lots of helpful info! http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL/html/

Dear Tyler,

Obviously, I didn't find how to do it in any of the materials I checked (Inkscape. org, YouTube, etc). Hence, my query.

Something doesn't work? - Keeping an eye on the status bar can save you a lot of time!

Inkscape FAQ - Learning Resources - Website with tutorials (German and English)

Obviously, you did not peruse the very first tutorial in the Help menu.
